Tedis Ukraine company increased tax payments to the budgets of all levels by 5% in 2020, year-over-year, to UAH 1.4 billion.
The company’s press service told Interfax-Ukraine on Tuesday, UAH 612 million of deductions went to the central budget, while UAH 809 million to local budgets.
“During its ten-year history, our company has consistently been one of the largest taxpayers in Ukraine, and since its inception, Tedis Ukraine has transferred over UAH 10 billion to the country’s budget,” Director General of the company Taras Korniyachenko said.
According to Tedis Ukraine, in 2020, the company paid UAH 705 million of retail excise tax on the sale of tobacco products to local budgets, which allowed it to become the largest taxpayer in Ukraine.
As reported, Tedis Ukraine in February was the first to achieve in the Supreme Court the satisfaction of the cassation appeal against the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine (AMCU) and the invalidation of a fine of UAH 3.4 billion. The Supreme Court said it sustained the cassation due to the impossibility of bringing any person to justice on the basis of decisions of the AMCU in other cases (having no prejudicial significance), without obligatory proof of guilt in each individual case and taking into account the erroneous legal qualification of actions of Tedis Ukraine LLC.
Tedis Ukraine is one of the largest Ukrainian distribution companies. The company employs about 2,300 employees. The regional network consists of 32 structural divisions throughout the country. The company covers a retail network of about 45,000 retail points throughout Ukraine.
